Great Britain’s Helena Lucas wins 2.4mR at World Cup
After seven regattas, Great Britain’s Helena Lucas has topped the ISAF World Cup standings in the single-person keelboat Paralympic sailing class. She goes into the London 2012 Paralympics as a podium favourite.
The Kieler-Woche, the final ISAF Sailing World Cup Regatta, concluded on Wednesday (20 June) allowing the World Cup Standings to be decided in the single-person keelboat class.
Though they did not take part in the Kieler Woche, Great Britain’s Helena Lucas had done enough to seal the overall title and teammate Megan Pascoe secured the second spot. Canada’s Paul Tingley’s fifth place in Kiel lifted him above the Netherlands' Thierry Schmitter to round off the World Cup podium.
France’s Damien Seguin won the Kieler-Woche with 21 points in the 2.4mR class. The Netherlands’ Thierry Schmitter was in second place with 30 points, whilst Germany’s Heiko Kroger came third on 37 points.
The Kieler-Woche was the last of seven regattas in the ISAF World Cup series.
